Ischemic myelopathy and Angiology of the Spinal Cord have recently drawn the attention of both paraplegists and angiologists, and their details are now fairly well known. Ischemic myelopathies increased with the rise of vascular surgery, but the means of prevention have been carefully studied and the incidence is now decreasing. Twenty-five hundred cases of cord injury have been reviewed, and among 92 nontraumatic cases, 16 ischemic myelopathies have been tabulated. The anatomy and physiology of the spinal cord circulation have been described.

    Abstract: Paraplegia and paraparesis are major concerns in descending and thoracoabdominal aortic repair. A shorter period of spinal cord ischemia is preferred for protection. We have developed a new technique in which plural intercostal arteries are reattached in a short time. The lower...

    Considering surgical treatment of spinal dural arteriovenous fistulas, the major difficulty is to localize them reliably during surgery. Usually the affected spinal level is sought by counting of bony structures using fluoroscopy. However, quite frequently, anatomical particularities impede...

    The aim of this study was to describe the arterial arrangement of the cervical spinal cord in rabbit because it has been used widely to examine the pathophysiology of spinal cord injury. The study was carried out on 20 adult New Zealand White rabbits. We prepared corrosion casts of the arterial...

    This article discusses findings of a study which examined the durability of peripheral angioplasty in treating patients with critical ischemia. The study involved patients undergoing angioplasty, both clinically and with ankle brachial indices and duplex imaging. The technical success rate for...

    The article offers information about spinal cord arteriovenous shunts (SCAVSs). It indicates that SCAVSs can be divided in two groups, the nidus-type arteriovenous malformations (AVMs) which can be implanted in the cord or superficial and the arteriovenous fistulas (AVFs) which are always placed...

    Spinal cord injury causes immediate damage of nervous tissue accompanied by the loss of motor and sensory function. The limited self-repair ability of damaged nervous tissue underlies the need for reparative interventions to restore function after spinal cord injury. Blood vessels play a crucial...

    We report a case of paraplegia occurring after an elective endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) that was reversed by cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) drainage. This case report highlights the reality that the endovascular management of abdominal aortic aneurysms (AAAs) with large volumes of mural...
